Hello, friends! Welcome back to 22 Days of Summer Fashion, where Cyndi at Grace + Beauty and I are bringing you a new summer outfit every weekday for the month of June! Today I’m styling studded gladiator sandals and my new LOFT Lace Ladder Tee.
Gladiator sandals have been on trend for quite a while, but I was never a huge fan. It’s a look I’ve admired on others, but I never found a pair I loved enough to take the plunge — until now!
I’ve had several R Minkoff bags, but I’ve never had any of her shoes until now. These will definitely not be my last! Her Georgina Studded Gladiator Sandals are stunning, and the leather is super soft.
The leather straps are super soft and supple and didn’t require a breaking-in period, and I love the leather footbed and the studded detail. It makes them look a bit classier than most gladiator styes, and the studded detail is a huge trend right now.
These are the Sand Leather, but I almost wish I’d gotten the Gold because most of my jewelry is gold, and I think they would go with more. I’m also a huge fan of the Blush. I’m sure I’ll get a ton of wear out of them, no matter what the color.
I styled them with this teal linen tee and my white distressed crop jeans, but they’re also perfect with jean shorts. I actually wore them with my cuffed jean shorts and a grey tee after they came in the mail on Saturday, and I like the way they dress up that casual look and give it a bit of an edgy vibe.
This is the Ladder Lace Tee from LOFT. I was drawn to the subtle lace detail around the sleeves. It’s one of those linen blend tees that LOFT is doing a lot this season, and I’m so glad to see one with a straight hemline. I’m kind of over the shirttail hem.
I washed it before I wore it for this shoot so it would fit the way it is going to fit long-term. So many times I photograph clothing when it’s fresh from the store, and the proportions change a bit after it’s washed. This way you can see what it will look like after it’s been washed.
These tops do tend to shrink some, so I always get a medium. I love that they don’t need to be ironed and don’t wrinkle too much but have the comfort and breathability of linen.
These are my favorite distressed white jeans. I love the way they are ripped without big gaping holes, and they are nice and thick and soft. You will want to size up in these. I have the 30 in these jeans, and I normally wear a 29.
Since the shoes have silver studs, I wanted to accessorize with silver. I had to dig deep into my jewelry armoire to find this necklace — it’s actually part of one of those 3-in-1 type of necklaces.
I’m only wearing one of the two pieces because I didn’t want too much bling to overpower the lace detail on the tee, but I did want a long pendant style necklace to elongate the upper body, especially since the neckline of the top isn’t as open as I typically like. I think it all works together nicely.
I did the front-tuck and wore an old snakeskin belt. I really need to update my belts! I’m loving this outfit for summer — the combination of bright teal and white is sublime, and the sandals take it up a notch or three!
